Oaths and Vows – Holiness Requires Being Separated From Un-Holiness

23 Jun
The Lord does have quite a lot of things to say about taken an oath or vow.
Hebrews 7:20, “And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) 22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.”
The Apostle Paul is stating here that Papa God never fails to keep His oaths. As we know He does throughout the Old and New Testaments.
As God is holy, we are to also be holy 1st Peter 2:15,”For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.”
The Jews considering themselves free and only servants to God used this doctrine to justify their many rebellions against Rome and others they considered as enemies. Peter is warning here not to do so, but to be subject to civil rulers in all lands proving you are true servants and disciples of Christ. They will know we are Christians by our love not by our rebellion.
Leviticus 11:44, “For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
We are talking about sanctification process here from anything that would defile or profane us from the Lord. We are to be set apart from the world. In this verse men were trying to sanctify themselves in the sense of cleanings themselves from sins and this they could not do.
Holiness requires being separated from un-holiness and you need to be covered in the blood of Jesus/Yeshua for that.
There are numerous provisions regarding our oath-taking in the Scriptures. One rather obvious verse to me would be the Third Commandment, “Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain.” Because when you think this through, Taking the Lord’s Name” means making an oath. The commandment the Lord gave us here is not that it should never be done, but rather that it not be done in vain. That it not be done falsely. You are not to lie and say you are a spirit-filled born again believer if it is not true. It appears certain other false religions allow their followers to lie if it helps furthers there cause. Nudge, nudge say no more.
We know for certain the devil is the father of lies. Because Jesus said so.
John 8:44,”Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Papa God wants us to take His Name, “Oh bride of Christ”, because it is essentially a way in which we bring him praise and honour to God.
In fact the secret of Christianity if there is one is this, the wedding ceremony to Christ which continues to mystify many people because they think our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural is rather vague about it. Au contraire.
The Lord caused the apostle Paul to tell us we all need to live a live of holiness in Christ. In Romans 6 and 7 Paul proves that the Jew is free from all obligation to the law keeping and shows why the law is helpless to deliver one person from sin and hell and that at death it breaks the marriage bond. Paul stated that the Jews are dead to the law because Christ has fulfilled its types and prophecies and abolished it, so they can be married to Christ and produce good fruit.
For we read in Romans 7:4, “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.”
Now in olden times the man had to prove his worth to win the father of the bride approval. We must understand then Jesus/Yeshua proved himself worthy when he died on the cross and resurrected 3 days later for the Bride of Christ.
When a couple takes an oath at a wedding ceremony the preacher is representing God almighty. He asks the groom to take an oath, will you take this women to your lawfully wedded wife? He asks the bride will you take this man to your lawfully wedded husband?
Then this amazing thing happens where they are pronounced one flesh, the two become one.
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”(Genesis 2:24).
Jesus said in Mark 10:8, “And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Jesus said in Luke 21:15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.’ I say hallelujah! Because “All”, things are possible with God! I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
